MOVE OVER, MIKE D’ANTONIO – HERE COMES JOHN BAIZLEY
A lot of attention to has been paid as of late of Baroness frontman John Baizley – and not just because Baroness’ latest, The Red Album, rocks (“Red is the new black!” Decibel declared). Baizley is, of course, also the cover artiste du jour – usurper of Mike D’Antonio, the Pushead of his generation, whatever – doing not only Baroness’ graphic but also spreads for recent releases from Pig Destroyer, Darkest Hour, Skeleton Witch, Genghis Tron, and The Red Chord.
Here’s some of Baizley’s most recent work, with which you may already be familiar:
Of course, it’d be a shame if Baizley’s excellent, incredibly distinctive work quickly became too overexposed (a concern Baizley himself expresses in the latest issue of Revolver). For now, though, you gotta admit: dude is some kinda graphic design badass.
Also: he he an awesome beard.
